Many Ways To Help Animals Facebook Page

Introduction

You can recycle to help animals by collecting certain items to be recycled and turned into money for animal charities and rescues. The following are items you can recycle to help animals:

  • Empty printer ink cartridges
  • Old mobile cell phones
  • Used stamps
  • Postcards
  • Left over foreign currency
  • Old and broken gold jewellery
  • Used padded envelopes can be useful for charities who fund raise online

Not all of the above are of use to every animal charity and rescue, it depends on which schemes they are signed up to. If you see ideas for fundraising which you suspect a rescue you know of  may not be currently benefiting from, point them to this page.

If you know an animal charity that would like to benefit from raising money this way, they can register with this scheme, and/or this scheme.

Recycle To Help Animals By Donating Stamps

Many animal charities and rescues raise funds through stamp donation. Used stamps, new stamps, British stamps, foreign stamps, rare stamps and every day stamps are all welcomed by different charities and can be worth around £6 – £20 per kilo!

Get family and friends to recycle to help animals by asking them to collect them too, and don’t forget about getting your workplace involved.

Used Stamps For Charity
Used Stamps For Charity

When cutting stamps out of envelopes, it is advised to leave a border of approximately 1cm around the stamp, being careful not to damage the edge of the stamp. If you rip them out, the stamps are more likely to accidentally get damaged, as the direction paper may rip can be unpredictable. Ripping a very large border, to cut it down later, minimises this risk.

Please don’t send the large gold labels put on by the Post Office, as they are not stamps.

Once you have packaged your stamps to send, if your parcel is more than 5mm thick, it will need a large letter stamp. Try to make sure you package your parcel in a way that means it will fit through the”Letter” or “Large Letter” slots at UK Post Offices. otherwise it may cost more to send the stamps than they could earn the charity. If you have a very large number of stamps, you may find it cheaper to send them in separate envelopes.

Here are some animal charities you can help by sending them stamps:

Farplace Animal Rescue

Farplace take in animals rejected elsewhere, e.g. feral or FIV+ cats.

Recycle To Help Animals By Donating Padded Envelopes

You can recycle to help animals by donating used padded envelopes. They are gratefully received by animal charities and rescue organisations who run online auctions and sales. They need the envelopes to send out items bought by people, and having to buy them eats into the amount of money that goes to the animals.

Old Christmas And Birthday Greetings Cards

Recycle to help animals by donating your old greetings cards. Some rescues and charities have volunteers who raise money by making gift tags and new greetings cards from old Christmas cards and other greetings cards. Serbia’s Forgotten Paws Facebook group is one such group (information correct at the time of publication).

You can contact them through their website, or request to join their Facebook group to ask them where to send your old greetings cards. You will have to be registered with Facebook to view the group page.

Alternatively, you can recycle them by making new cards and other items from them yourself, and donating them to animal charities and rescues for them to fund raise with. Have a look at how, here.

Another way you can recycle to help animals is with old or broken silver or gold jewellery. Some animal rescue shelters and charities, such as Hillside Animal Sanctuary, collect and sell it to raise funds.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary campaigns for, and helps, a huge number of animals in need. It brings public awareness to the millions of animals suffering every day in the intensive factory farming industry. Most of Hillside’s residents are animals who have been rescued from the farming industry. They have also given sanctuary to over 750 horses, ponies and donkeys, and the number of animals it cares for is constantly growing.

Below are a number of animal charities who are grateful for old jewellery:

Save A Life Cheshire

These are only a small number of many animal charities and rescues that would welcome donations of broken silver and gold jewellery. Check with animal charities you would like to support. If you know of any that do not raise funds this way, let them know about it.

Some animal rescue shelters and charities collect donations of foreign currency left over from your holidays. Some also collect out of date currency no longer in circulation.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary is one animal charity who collect this currency, but by no means the only one. Below is the postal address to send the currency.

Norwich

Save A Life Cheshire

Save A Life Cheshire take, not only left over foreign currency, but also obsolete currency. Contact them in their Facebook group to find out where to send it. They provide a freepost postage label too.

Many other charities and rescues will collect foreign currency and will state on their individual website whether they do or not.

Even If A Charity Does Not Accept Items For Recycling

An animal charity you want to support may say it cannot accept items for recycling as it does not have enough time or volunteers to oversee the task. This is where Recycling For Good Causes comes in. It allows individuals to send a wide range of items direct to them for free, and choose a charity they want the money to go to. They then send a cheque for the proceeds to your chosen charity.

They provide a freepost postage label if you wish to send a small amount, or a free collection service for large amounts. See this page for more details.
